You have to see this!

How do you find the words to describe this kind of talent and workmanship?  You tell me!  Last night I picked up my “Friends of Baltimore” from Ruth at Stitching Impressions.  As I mentioned in my last post, I decided to take out all my hand-quilting stitches and have Ruth machine quilt it.  This could very well be one of the best decision I have ever made!  Take a look at what Ruth did.  I am only going to show you a few blocks at a time, just so you do not get overwhelmed.  Ruth wrote a blog post describing her different techniques and terminology.  You can check it out here.

If you are thinking about making this quilt I recommend you jump in with both feet.  Have fun and enjoy the journey.  I did!  The pattern is available on my website Simple Bird Studio.

  1. Nobody can beat this kind of machine quilting! I am completely lost for words!
    I now have nearly two borders and 9 blocks and I love making this quilt!

  2. Hi Kerry,
    Thanks for allowing me to quilt your quilt for you. It is stunning all on its own. As I said to you, all the applique points are so flat! I was honored that you trusted me with your gorgeous quilt. I had alot of fun quilting it.

  3. Wow – what a phenomenal quilt and what incredible quilting to complement the quilt!!!! I’m blown away – such wonderful work!!!!

  4. MASTERPIECE! I see a Blue Ribbon, Best of Show, and any other ribbons out there for this one. Congratulations on the difficult work and so glad you had it professionally done. I also prefer hand quilting, but sometimes to be competitive we have to have it professionally quilted.

  5. Your quilt was alive already with the fantastic applique but the quilting was just the icing on the cake, 2 great talents combined really created a masterpiece. You made the right decision in having it done by this lady. I guess now you get to enjoy the binding, finishing. what next?
